Booker saves 300k meals from going to waste with Too Good to Go partnership

Wholesaler Booker has revealed it has saved over 300,00 meals from being thrown away last year as a result of its Too Good to Go partnership.

As a result of the partnership, over 500 Premier, Londis and Budgens stores across the UK have helped to prevent food waste.

Over the past 12 months, Too Good to Go’s ‘magic bag’ scheme, containing surplus food items for a discounted price, has saved 135,000 kg of food going to waste, the equivalent of 323,293 meals.

“I am proud of our symbol group retailers who have taken the opportunity to reduce their food waste through the sale of magic bags,” Booker sustainability manager Catherine Marston said.

“In addition to being environmentally friendly, it helps families to reduce their outgoings – which has never been more important – and underpins our values to support communities and the planet.”

Too Good to Go co-founder Jamie Crummie added: “It has been fantastic to see our partnership with Booker’s customers go from strength to strength as we hit this great milestone.

“Not only is reducing food waste one of the most important things we can do to fight climate change, but it also allows for people to try out delicious food in an affordable way.”
